    You could perhaps contact Chuck Smith via PM or email. He is the author of Snowplowing Handbook. I have a copy of his and it is load full of information there. It was a huge asset to me when I was just starting out in plowing. It do come with a price (for book), but well worth it! :)

    Welcome to Plow-site.
    One of the first things you should get started with is Insurance. After reading on that topic here you will see that will be one of your hardest challenges. It takes time so you want to get started on that very quickly. It is also one of the most important thing you can do. You have to protect yourself.
